We're Selling our Bike Trailer

I just posted our Cougar Chariot 2 Bike Trailer/Stroller on Craigslist.  I am surprisingly sad to sell it. 

We've had it for less than a year, but it's brought us a lot of fun biking memories.  We bought it used, 5 years old with only 20 miles on it for $150.

Jasper BEGS to get in the trailer for a ride and always shouts "Wheeee" when we start riding.

The above photo of him with the red bandana under his helmet was taken on a very  really windy that day.  to keep out the wind I wear a bandana under my helmet to cover my ears, so he decided he need one too.

I had to include the view from my handlebars when we have to stop so Jasper can take a potty break on the side of the road.  My apologies to the residents in the San Jacinto streets area.

We're ready to move up to a Weehoo iGo Trailer Bike and make some more great memories. It's hard to believe Jasper will be 4 in a month!

Post script:  It sold in less than 24 hours for $50 more than what we bought it for a year ago.  Here's my listing:

Chariot Carrier, Cougar 2 -- Bike trailer and/or stroller

Chariot makes a great bike trailer with many wonderful features.  There's plenty of room for your child to have a drink, a snack, books and toys in the trailer with them.

Every time we start our bike rides my sons says, "Wheeeee!" He begs to go on bike rides in this trailer.

Seats 1 or 2 kids -- up to 100 lbs total.
5 point harness
Adjustable spring suspension -- adjusts according to passenger weight
Cargo pocket plus large rear storage bag
Adjustable height handle
Top shelf accessory cargo rack ($80)
Stroller attachment -- 2 front wheels ($75)
Bike attachment ($70)

Folds easy for storage in garage or to fit in your car.
Colors: Red/ Black and Grey

This Chariot has always been stored in the garage.
I would love to see this go to someone who's kids will enjoy riding in it as much as my son does.
This trailer is 6 years old and is in good shape. The price for a new Chariot Cougar 2 is $620. This one comes with over $225 in accessories. It would cost over $800 for a new Chariot Cougar 2 with all of these accessories.

I wish we lived closer, I've just been looking at bike trailers. Why did you decide to sell it?

I wish you lived closer too! We sold it so Jasper can get a trail along type bike. The one we love is called the Weehoo.
